About

I have been in private practice for more than 25 years, working collaboratively with individuals and couples who are navigating life transitions and challenges in search of reduced stress, healing, and growth. With the use of empowering, supportive, solutions-focused strategies, I specialize in personal and relationship improvement with the goal of finding resiliency, joy, and meaning in life. I strive to help create loving, supportive relationships through couples counseling, conflict management in family and interpersonal relationships, and parenting and co-parenting coaching. Therapy dog is available. Working with individuals who are navigating the difficult waters of divorce is an area of specialty.
My practice focuses on the reduction of depression, anxiety, work related stress; relationship enhancement; healing through grief and loss; living with chronic illness; and Twelve Step Recovery from alcohol/drug abuse. I am a consultant at a divorce mediation center and a founding member of cBridge, an organization of multidisciplinary professionals who specialize in divorce.
My approach to therapy is interactive with the use of mindfulness, psychodynamic therapy, and behavior therapies (CBT, DBT). (Christian counseling on request). I give feedback and coping strategies for stress management to use outside of counseling. I look forward to the privilege of accompanying you on your healing journey! (215) 348-9250
